State and non-state actors employ law to pursue their strategic interests. From a hybrid threat perspective, the law is best understood as an instrument and as a domain of strategic competition: Law may represent a hybrid threat in its own right, but it also constitutes a domain of competition in which activities are undertaken to achieve desired strategic effects. This Hybrid CoE Research Report provides an overview of the legal threat landscape, argues for a strategic approach to navigate that landscape, and offers a legal resilience perspective as guidance for developing such an approach. Finally, the report develops recommendations for putting legal resilience into practice.
Thorough, in-depth study providing a comprehensive understanding of hybrid threats and phenomena. Includes relevant policy recommendations or practical conclusions.
